Awoken by Psi-Baka-Onna Awoken by Psi-Baka-Onna
My entry for the 50 Shades of Green book cover contest chezapocalypse.com/episodes/ep…. They asked for a sketch, I ended up going one further and slapping some colour on there just 'cus that's how I roll. It's not finished by a long shot as the background doesn't have any shading and Lego Brick's proportions are fairly rough but it meets the standards of a rough concept.

Originally I was thinking about just doing a pearl on a black background but then Lindsay talked of how she liked the whole "woman going places" trend in YA covers and I remembered Serra's own love of the ocean and so I ended up with this. I think a full version of the cover would probably involve more tree-tentacles reaching out to our protagonist as she makes her way down to the beach in her trance state. Maybe have her in a pale green dress/nightie instead with her pale skin almost glowing in the moonlight but this'll do for now.

I doubt this'll get picked but at least it could act as inspiration for anyone else seeking to have a go at making the cover for this.

Bwhahaha! Next thing you know, you'll be buying the book and be all like "it's a satire but whhhhhyyyyy?!"

They've even put together a website for the "author" where she can put up "inspirational" stories about her work and complain about negative reviews in a weird parody of Meyer and other authors who write this kind of thing. serraelinsen.com/

Also, an extract of the book which reads a lot like the kind of fan fiction I wrote as a teenager: serraelinsen.com/2013/07/25/a-…

Ha ha, fair enough. I'll still read it and let you know how horrendously bad it is. Might be worth a laugh. And who knows, maybe I'll pick up an actual Lovecraft book afterwards so that I can see for myself how much the mythos was actually shat on. Hee hee.
